VigorConnect - Upgrade VigorAP Firmware

Show all

VigorConnect helps the network administrator to maintain multiple APs effectively. This document demonstrates how to upgrade multiple APs' firmware with VigorConnect.

Prepare the firmware file

We may need to upload the firmware file first. Go to SYSTEM MENU > Maintenance > File Manager
There are two ways to get the firmware file:

    • Upload the firmware file manually: 
      Go to SYSTEM MENU > Maintenance > File Manager, click the Upload button and select the file from your local disk. You can create the folder and choose the path to save your firmware file there.

Uploading Firmware File Manually

    • Download the firmware from DrayTek FTP server: 
      Go to SYSTEM MENU > Maintenance > File Manager, click Draytek FTP button and the folder list of FTP server will be displayed. Choose the model/firmware version which you want to apply to the VigorAP, then press the Download button. Once the file downloads successfully, it will be extracted automatically and could be found in SharedFirmware folder.
